Pad Thai is a classic dish that appears on restaurant menus around the globe. Unknown by most people, the dish is actually of Chinese origin, but became popular in Thailand in 1939 when the Prime Minister tried to unify the country with a dish that utilized foods grown by Thai farmers. To deliver a hint of spicy heat and straightforward chili flavor, we included Sambal Oelek, a popular Asian paste made from grinding chili peppers.
